Compared to file.rename file_move() always fails if it is unable to move a file, rather than signaling a Warning and returning an error code.

file_move(path, new_path)

Arguments

path

A character vector of one or more paths.

new_path

New file path. If new_path is existing directory, the file will be moved into that directory; otherwise it will be moved/renamed to the full path.

Should either be the same length as path, or a single directory.

Value

The new path (invisibly).

Examples

file_create("foo") file_move("foo", "bar") file_exists(c("foo", "bar"))
#> foo bar #> FALSE TRUE
